Wolf and Spice Season 3 is likely to continue where Seasons 1 and 2 left off since they were very similar to the light book series. “The Wolf and the Amber Melancholy,” the sixth book in the series, is likely to be adapted into the third season.
In this book, Lawrence and Holo decide to go to Yoitsu, Holo’s home country, to try to put off the inevitable time when they will have to split up. They face new problems and risks along the way, as well as old friends and foes. They also find out more about the world’s secrets and the wolf gods’ past.

In the second season, traveling merchant Kraft Lawrence and wolf goddess Holo, who can change into a human, go on a trip to find Holo’s home country of Yoitsu. Along the way, they face many problems, including rival traders, risky business deals, and feelings of love.
In this story arc, Lawrence and Holo go to the town of Kumerson and get involved in a plan to change the price of pyrite, a gemstone that can be used instead of gold.
But they also have to deal with Amarty, a young trader who has a thing for Holo and tries to win her over. Lawrence has trouble dealing with his insecurity and anger, and Holo figures out how she really feels about him.
